I like the blue checkered pants and pixelated face look, not so keen on the other one, but neither are as cool as the guy in glasses with his printed baby in baby sling T shirt you posted a few months ago….
the top one is so great. love tshirts tucked in and how the glitter on the face takes away from the possible formality of the trousers (anyone know what brand they are?). i wish i could see what shoes he’s wearing.
The older I get, the more basic I want my clothes to be. Having said that, I broke my own rule and bought one of the GAP/Whitney collaboration T-shirts. Yes I am going somewhere with this: the Chuck Close T is one of such collaborations, and since sold-out. My pick would be to pair it with really simple pants, like the guy on the top pic, so that the print can be the “pop” of the outfit. I like the checkered pants, but how many times would you wear them before the novelty would wear off? Jorge from W Palm Beach
I think the tshirts are brilliant even if I may not think they’re suitable for the wearer or paired well.
What confuses me about the first guy is that he clearly likes hiding as much of his face as possible between his facial hair and sunglasses yet he draws huge attention to himself with the choice of tshirts.
LOVE number 2′s checkered pants (bright, but not too bright! Where can I get a pair in women’s sizes?), and the delightful irony that the face on his shirt is bigger than his own. xD I actually used to know a young “punk” who dressed like this… Awesome shot!
I have to have those uber cool checked pants! How fun! It is kind of cool how this man kept the theme by wearing a t-shirt with a Chuck Close image, which is made up of many little blocks. A very, very neat and well-thought out look!
one of those pictures i closed and then had to reopen just to see how much i liked it. which was when i saw the little belt tail sticking out from under the t shirt, question is whether or not he pulled that little number out on purpose and if so whether i like that more or less for the obsessiveness. great checks.
As mentioned by others, the bottom shirt is a portrait of Philip Glass by Chuck Close. The shirt was part of an artists series of t-shirts from GAP, and I tried desperately to get that exact one to no success
I like face tee’s a facial expression communicates very clear there is a lot to capture. If you find one that you like your a lucky man. also notice how there outfit is based on the face each of them have garments that support the face it is the man piece for the day.
The first pic is genius! His tanned skin with the tone of his clothes is harmonious. The fit and quality of the tee is much greater than that of the gap one, making it much more appropriate for a dress pant. Art and fashion here collide to my liking.
Would rather see art on a wall (we’re lucky to have three Chuck Close originals in my office!), but it bothers me more that in the top photo the face is tucked into the man’s pants. It just seems bizarre.
I’m a designer and one of my pieces is also a face design on a tee. We were originally inspired by the face series designed by Harlow Monrow which featured Kate Moss and Marilyn Monrow, however we wanted all our designs to be more than just a face. Thus we painstakingly designed a series called the COLOR ME series which featured the faces of super models in a paint by numbers stencil. The concept was a commentary on the perception of beauty and the socialization of race differentiation. You can check it out and comment at http://www.soscloth.com. I think the style of using faces alone has be done and over dnoe. The Chuck Close version is an exception because of the technique used to produce the shirt, it is not only a halftone design but it also uses flocking or some sort of sewing to created the half tone dots which is completely new approach to the face. It’s not just another silk screen which is so common place as of late.
Agree that the check pants in photo two are great, but the look in photo one is the winner for me; the t-shirt is a bold statement, backing up the pose and the glasses to say: I defy you to read/interpret/translate me.
